With all the things going on all at the same time lately, I haven’t had the time to indulge in my favorite hobby – cooking!
And I must say, it FEEEEELS SOOOOO GOOOOOOD to get cooking and fire the little oven once again!
These meatballs are healthy in the sense that they are not fried… I used lean meat… and yogurt! And it is an easy recipe to put together, too.
500 grams lean ground pork (maximum of 10% fat)
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
125 grams Greek-style yogurt
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Mix the yogurt and bread crumbs together. It will be clumpy. Set aside.
Beat the egg with the salt and pepper. Meanwhile start pre-heating the oven to 400*F.
Mix the ground pork, onion, garlic, egg mixture, and bread crumb mixture together. Don’t overwork the meat or it could get tough when cooked.
Form the meat mixture into balls. I got about 30 balls. Arrange on a baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes or less. The leaner the meat, the tougher it can get if it is over-done, so be careful.
